I am against Racism, Sexism and many other Ism's
I do not however see how this is any business of the school district ? The first incident was cheerleaders (not in uniform) not on school property. The second is that the school is accessing the students facebook page is well beyond what their authority should reach. Cyber Trespassing ?

My company has a social media policy - If I in anyway mention the company, logo etc, I am in trouble, but if I want to post tasteless pictures I may taint my bosses view of me but there cannot be any retaliatory practice. So if they used a school symbol - go after them, but if not. Its not their responsibility.

I do want the school to do more around child safety, bullying, predatory teachers etc at school which when found out they often feign is not their responsibility but yet they have time to monitor social media ?? Here in Canada we have Catholic and Public schools - both are equally publically funded. Two sets of busses, two school boards, two schools in the same neighborhood, etc. Then we have charter schools which get vouchers for the number of students who elect to go to those schools but they don't receive bus or other infrastructure monies so they would be considered semi-private. These schools are often focused on a particular religion and of course are accused of leaching money away from public education.

While I don't think that religion belongs in any school system I would rather concede that you could make religion (all sorts of them) an optional class and eliminate the multiple school boards so more money is focused on the class room. Ie why have two schools with gymnasiums, fields, sports programs in the same neighborhood and all the administrative overhead like principals, vice principals, councillors, etc . Combine and build one better school for all. For the kids that don't want to take religion make them take a class in cultural sensitivity (include LGBTQ in there as well) and work to improve society.   

Back to the incidents that these articles allude to; someone should be lodging the complaint with the police - and have these investigated as hate crimes, and I would like to see the approach taken like they do in Singapore that the parents/guardians are the responsible for the actions of their minor children.
